If you’re looking for an overview of many skills for outdoor survival, this is a good general book. It does both primitive and none primitive skills. Because of its scope, it doesn’t provide a lot of detail on any one topic, so it does have its limitations. One very good thing about the book it that the author has actually used these skills. He writes from a place of experience- not theory. So there are gems in here even for those with experience.
